Title:Clergy protest
Date:2006, 1962

On Tuesday, August 28, 1962, at the request of Dr. King and Albany Movement leaders, seventy-five clergy and church members of various races and religions traveled to Albany to demonstrate in front of City Hall and show their support for the Albany Movement. Some of the protesters came from other parts of Georgia. However, the majority of the protesters came from states outside of the South: primarily New York and Illinois, but also Connecticut, Indiana, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Texas, and Washington, D.C.
